welcome to "cbs this morning." gae king is off, so we're pleased to have our pal jeff glor with us zbhood morning. >> california this morning is bracing for the strongest storm to hit the west coast in more than six years. dozens of scores are closed this morning. heavy rains and winds threaten to bring trees and power lines down. >> the worst of the storm is expected to hit throughout. some could see up to a foot of rain over the next two days. bigad shaban is in sacramento where people are preparing anyway they can. bigad, good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. the heavy rain isn't expected to fall here for a couple of hours but it should last through the day. right now the biggest concern along the sacramento river is the creeks and rivers that fed into it are already swollen from the storm last week which only increases the risk for flooding. the rain clouds over northern california opened up overnight.
7:04 am
there was a downpour people haven't seen in years. in some communities up to 8 inches of rain are expected by this evening. kimmy and her son filled sand bags to line along her home because of worries along the sacramento river. >> we hear there's a big storm and so we're going to be ready. i think we even done all that we can. this is the last bit. >> along the california coast, near hurricane force winds threatened to knock out power for thousands. victor jenkins helped his 87-year-old neighbor prepare for the storm. >> physical labor is not what i do? i sit behind my computer. >> this is one of those systems we don't see very often. >> reporter: michelle meade is a national coordinator with the national weather service. it will do little to help the drought-ravaged state. in the whole scheme of things
7:05 am
it's not going to do a lot. >> no. it's a little drop. >> reporter: but the potential for high surf is causing big concerns along beaches in los angeles. crews built sand berms to prevent flooding since waves could reach two stories tall. now, despite all these precautions, the wet weather is also being welcomed here in california which is in its third year of drought. jeff, back to you. >> bigad, thank you very much. huge waves are pounding the coast. already they've swept homes into the water. evelyn is tracking all of it. evelyn, good morning. >> good morning. indeed, we're looking at dangerous surf up and down the coast. rain expected, 3 to 4 inches but in the higher elevations, up to maybe 10 inches. and snow-wise, 1 to 3 inches in the sierra. we could see very gusty conditions, up to 120 miles per
7:06 am
hour along some ridgetops. for futurecasts, you'll see rain work into the bay area for the remainder of the day. as we head into the afternoon and early evening hours we're going to see rain along the central coast of california and finally southern california getting hit in the overnight and early morning hours for tomorrow. for the east, things starting to dry out for the next couple of day s and warm up. >> evelyn, thank you. here's a look at new york, 2 feet in syracuse. bringing down power lines. it forced an interstate to close most of wednesday. an al qaeda group in yemen said it attacked an air base used by americans. they say it was revenge for failure to attempt to rescue luke somers. david martin is at the pentagon. good morning. >> good morning.
7:07 am
they refused to say whether any u.s. military personnel were even at the base at the time of the attack. al qaeda said they fired a half dozen rockets at the american part of this sprawling base located near the area where luke somers was held. a relatively small number of special operations forces are in yemen working with yemeni troops in the battle against al qaeda and over the last couple of weeks they conducted two raids in an attempt to rescue somers. in the first attempt, somers was not there, in the second attempt, he and a teacher from south africa were killed by guards. luke somers' body arrived back in the u.s. at the air force
7:08 am
base in dover. jeff. >> thank you. many cannot stop arguing about a scathing senate report on the terror attacks on 9/11. one of the targets is responding to the criticism this morning but he said there's not much he can talk about. nancy cordes spoke with him. she's on capitol hill. good morning. >> good morning, jeff. he's a psychologist who spent most of his career as a serviceman. after 9/11 he and his business partner came to the cia with an idea on,000 handle prisoners. the report says his methods were in'affective but he's getting some high-profile backup. the former vice president says the senate intelligence report throws intelligence professionals under the bus. >> what happened here was we asked the agency to go and take steps to put in place programs that were put in place to catch the bastards who killed on 9/11 and make sure it didn't happen again and that's exactly what
7:09 am
they did. >> the cia says one of those professionals was dr. james mitchell. >> i'm not going to confirm or deny that i was one of the persons they contacted. >> reporter: he was one half of the duo dubbed dunbar and swart. we reached him at home where he said the report drafted by the senate intelligence committee is one-sided. >> what i believe is if there's a beef with the cia and senator feinstein and this is just her effort on the way out to smear the men and women there. >> reporter: the report is unflattering. neither psychologist had any experience as an interrogator, nor did either have knowledge of al qaeda th. >> it's just stupid, stupid. >> why? >> it's just false, to have a nondisclosure agreement. i can't even defend myself.
7:10 am
>> reporter: the report says it was mitchell who suggested 12 different things including a face slap. he sat down and said many critics of the interrogation program had a double standard. >> to me it seems completely unsensible, slapping people is bad but sending people into a picnic and killing granny and everyone is okay. >> he said he was never contacted by the office of the report and when i asked why they would turn to outside contractors to divide a program that would seem to be at the heart of the cia responsibilities, he said we would have to ask that question of the cia. charlie. >> thanks. police in hong kong this
7:11 am
morning are clearing the main camp used by pro-democracy protesters. the protests began 2 1/2 months ago. demonstrators are angry about the government's involvement in choosing election candidates. a protest organizer says the fight for open elections is not over. >> the national football league says it now has the right framework to address misconduct off the field. all 32 team owners voted wednesday to impose a tough new policy. it applies to everyone. coaches, player, and employees. and as roger goodell reports, the nfl wants to show that rape and violence will not be tolerated. >> it clearly spells out not only how the league kayes out its investigations but when and what types of punishments will be doled out. one of the biggest changes, nfl commissioner roger goodell is stripped of key powers. a new official will be put in charge of investigations and discipline. >> this will be a highly
7:12 am
qualified individual with a criminal justice background, hired as soon as possible. >> reporter: the eight-page policy covers sex assault, dating violence, child abuse, stalking, assault and battery, cruelty to animals and any conduct that undermines the integrity of the nfl is also banned. nancy armoire, a sports columnist for "usa today" welcomes the changes. >> really for the past few months there have been knee-jerk reactions and plan ace lock the way. >> the commissioner has final say on appeals. sex assault and domestic violence offenses carry a baseline six-game suspension. norah o'donnell asked roger goodell about that in september. >> does the nfl have a domestic
7:13 am
violence policy. >> one case is enough. if we have one case, that's something we have to address. if we have multiple, we have to change our training and education to try to eliminate the issue. >> they were surprised saying their unilateral decision and conduct today is tonal thing that's been consistent over the past few months. >> you have to have everybody buying in. as t way it stands right now, the players are not going to. >> they have outside consultants. in the case of domestic violence or child abuse, the league will provide critical teams to provide assistance to victims, perpetrator, and their families. >> jim, thank you very much. the dow jones industrial fell 250 points on wednesday, the worth since october. >> the average price of crude
7:14 am
oil is now at a five-year low. cbs analyst mellody hobson joins us this morning. good morning. what's going on? >> it starts in china. we've seen it play out in a big way in terms of oil but other commodities as well. >> if there's not enough demand and those prices go down. >> demand is one side of the equation but supply is the other side and supply in america has been amazing. in just six years america has reduced its dependency on foreign oil by 50%. that means that the oil cartel, opec, doesn't have the control and power that it had before and so while everyone resets here, we've seen a very sharp drop in oil prices. >> it's interesting to see the government is predicting the gaps will be about $2.60 a gallon next year. that's going to save drivers about $120 billion a week. that's $25 a week in people's
7:15 am
paychecks. that's a lot of money. what's the downside? >> i believe it's short term. that is for oil companies themselves. >> which is why the market really accelerated. >> exactly. they represent about 10% of the s&p 500. their stocks are down 50% this year. they have to right-size themselves now. just a year ago these companies were booming. so it's been this fast fall that's caused a problem but over the intermediate term, this will be a boon to the american consumer. i think of it like a stimulus. for every one penny, it's a billion dollars in spending. >> what's the future of the chinese economy if it's going to impact them? >> here's the thing. we're still growing by 7%. this is huge. it's just not the double growth we saw years ago that was at 14%. it won't be this explosive growth that we saw. so, again, everyone is
7:16 am
right-sizing themselves at this point. >> in the u.s., we still have the recovery we hoped for. >> yes. and the u.s. is expected to do what it's doing, which is slow but steady growth and europe is expected to be a slow grower as well. so the bigger story hasn't changed. the global multinationals are in great slap. i'm not that worried. >> really doctoring. mellody hobson, thank you so much. and police this morning are investigating whether a driver who plowed through a crowded shopping area in new york city was intoxicated. it happened last night near the macy's flagship store. six pedestrians were hit. the car struck pedestrians before smash into a window. the driver is being treated for nonlife-threatening injuries. david letterman announced his last show will be in may. in his career he's won five emmys, peabody, and expected
7:17 am
millions. vad m vladimir duthiers is here with a shift at night. >> one thing that won't be forgotten. the indelible impact he's had on generations of americans who grew up watching him. >> the cia torture report is 6 million pages long. it's almost as long as a george clooney prenup. >> reporter: his iconic gap-toothed smile and wit has been with us for more than three decades. >> there's a whole generation of comics right now including most of the other late-night hosts who were tremendously influenced by lettermen. >> aannounced his retirement on one of his late shows. >> 2015, for the love of god, in fact, paul and i will be wrapping things up and taking a
7:18 am
hike. >> reporter: that date is now official. may 20th. in a statement ceo leslie moonves says it's going to be tough to say good-bye but i know we'll all chirish the shows leading up to dave's final broadcast in may. his irreverent and often over-the-top antics brought him fans and critical acclaim. next year he will be taking over as host of this program, the "late show." ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the very talented, the always entertaining stephen colbert. >> waiting in the wings, comedian stephen colbert who's hosted the popular "colbert report" on comedy central since 2005. the impending change was even joked about during the kennedy center honors earlier this week.
7:19 am
>> not yet. >> stephen colbert will take over hosting duties at some point in 2015. his last show on comedy central will tape next week. as for letterman, he says he wants to spend more time with his family including his 11-year-old son. >> he will be missed. >> absolutely. i grew up watching him. so it will be a total bummer to see him go. >> i know. big shoes for for colbert to fill. up next on "cbs this morning," a lost fisherman's survivor story. he reveals h

7:34 am
alex says that report is false. >> jackie and i are close and she's a very good storyteller. i'm a little confused. i knew why she decided to portray everybody who, you know, tried to help her as somehow horrible, sort of animal house frat boys, but, you know, i'm not sure. >> reporter: alexeis he does not remember jackie appearing physically injured but that he and another friend identified as randall in the article stayed through the night with her at her request and encouraged her to get help. randall spoke to cbs newss in silhouette under the condition we not use his real name. >> what do you remember? >> it was pretty obvious she went through some kind of traumatic experience. she kept looking around like someone was going to jump out of the dark and it was clear she had been crying. >> reporter: dal said jackie told him she and her date stopped a at fraternity house and she was invited upstairs. >> when she got upstair upstair

construction is likely causing dribers frustration this morning it's costing taxpayers time and money. highway repairs require $120 billion in funnels a year.
7:43 am
jeff pegues with how costs and delays can snowball thanks to red tape and spiders the size of a dime. jeff, good morning. >> good morning. a lot of o highway construction projects are scheduled to take years and often take longer and blow their budget. we decided to take a look at some of the major projects around the country to see why you're spending more time sitting on the highway than driving on it. construction projects are taking longer and costing taxpayers more than they should. that's what patrick natal, the national director of the society of civil engineers believes. why does construction take so long? >> one of the biggest problems is the approval process. we get hung up in red tape frequently that drags projects out for many, many years. >> he should know. his engineering group studies the condition of the nation's infrastructure. it's easy to forget what these delays mean for you. >> the delivery truck has to go that way, delivering goods and services. add that into your cost. so the public is paying for it
7:44 am
one way or the other. >> reporter: before breaking ground, city, state, and federal regulations can add years to a project. case in point, this underpass in san antonio. the $15 million highway project ground to a halt because of something the size of a dime. this sykoick sick arena veni is protected. led to an eight-figure cost increase for the project. >> i think that kind of tripling for infrastructure cost is a complete budget buster. >> susan combs, the publicly elected controller for texas says her constituents are frustrated. >> when they're told that there's a dime-sized spider which nobody's ever heard of and it's going to cost lives because of balances because you can't get to work, they don't understand it. they don't see its value and they're shaking their heads. >> reporter: because of the spider, the cost will go from $15 million to at least $44
7:45 am
million. the project that was supposed to be completed in 2013 won't even break ground until next year. this billion dollar expansion of the 405 freeway in los angeles was supposed to take three years and ended up taking 4 1/2. commuters in the city of angels lose around 61 hours a year to traffic. officials added a car pool lane promising it would reduce commute times by at least 36 minutes. dave satero, a spokesman for the metropolitan transportation authority defends the work that was done. >> we aligned 28 freeway ramps as part of the project. we built three freeway bridges and brought them up to modern seismic standards. >> reporter: but what it didn't do is reduce traffic. a recent study concluded the traffic may even be worse. add the fact that construction climb $100 million over the
7:46 am
original price tag and you can see why some commuters aren't happy with the result. katy harris takes the freeway almost daily. >> the 405 is awful. i can't even wish it on my worst enemies. >> now there are some possible solutions including some kind of asphalt used in winter and charging fees to companies each time they block a lane of traffic but for now it appears the commuters might just be left in a jam. >> now what happened to the spider? >> this is what i find fascinating. this spider, the first one they found in 1980 -- >> there were two spiders. >> the first was found in 1980 and they determined that it was an endangered species and then 32 years later they find the second one as they're starting this project in 2012. but to determine whether it is endangered, they have to capture it, they have to kill it, and they have to dissect it. so the spider that held up the project that was endangered,

sleep and your memory. a new study found that certain sleep disorders may put you at a higher risk for dementia. dr. carol ash is a director of sleep medicine at the university of health in new jersey. good morning. >> good morning. >> what's the link here and why is this happening? >> it's great study. what they did was look at 167 elderly men and followed them through life to death and then they examined their brains at autopsy and they looked at abnormalities in the brain and they associated it back to a sleep study where they looked at drops in oxygen, breathing patterns and sleep patterns and what they found, jeff, was in the brain where there's a small little microinflux or death in the brain which was related to drops in oxygen on sleep study or sleep apnea, a breathing problem and app brain shrinkage.
8:14 am
these changes are permanent. >> if you have sleep apnea, oxygen does not get to your brain. >> that's exactly right, charlie. so lack of oxygen to the brain and this link is suggesting that that's changing the brain's structure and linking it to dementia because what they looked at then was these individuals had declined in their mental function. and this is significant. >> not even with dementia but the relationship, too, between deep sleep and memory just for all of us is an issue. >> absolutely. we think of sleep apnea. we tend to think of fatigue as one of the things we should be looking at as a soon that you have a sleep problem but this study is reinforcing that we need to be mindful. if you're having problems with your memory or dementia, that there's a critical point that you can intervene and perhaps change the outcome. >> by doing what? >> well, looking for sleep disorders or just even changing your own sleep habits and improving the amount of sleep that you have in your sleep.

a man who doesn't stand still. but jim has afib, atrial fibrillation an irregular heartbeat, not caused by a heart valve problem. that puts jim at a greater risk of stroke. for years, jim's medicine tied him to a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but now, with once-a-day xarelto®, jim's on the move.
8:40 am
jim's doctor recommended xarelto®. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce afib-related stroke risk. but xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem, that doesn't require regular blood monitoring. so jim's not tied to that monitoring routine. gps: proceed to the designated route. not today. for patients currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. xarelto® is just one pill a day taken with the evening meal. plus, with no known dietary restrictions, jim can eat the healthy foods he likes. don't stop taking xarelto®, rivaroxaban, unless your doctor tells you to. while taking xarelto®, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious bleeding, and in rare cases, may be fatal. get help right away if you develop unexpected bleeding,
8:41 am
unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any conditions such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. jim changed his routine. ask your doctor about xarelto®. once-a-day xarelto® means no regular blood monitoring, no known dietary restrictions. for information and savings options, download the xarelto® patient center app, call 1-888-xarelto, or visit
